Reymond Alferos fulfilled the expectations of his coaches by breaking the NCAA Record with a run of 48.71. Alferos is a student at Mapua. A few years ago he ran on some bad luck being removed from the National Team. He clocked a personal best of 48.40 at the National championships. Then was given a second chance in the national team.
While the former record was from 2013 SEA Games Champion Archand Bagsit of Letran with a time of 48.87 set in the 2012 NCAA. Bagsit trained with Ben Humangit and then with Ernie Candelario.
Jomar Udtohan (San Sebastian) who won the 100 and 200, took second place in 48.76 also beneath the old record, and Anfernee Lopena (CSB) the bronze in 49.50.
Alferos is under National head coach Sean Guevarra. But trained by his good friend and former National Coach Ernie Candelario. Candelario who was removed from the national coaching staff last year. Has really improved Alferos from a 51 runner to a 48 runner in a few years. And continues to work and improve developing athletes. Pinoyathletics would like to congratulate the two athletes for there strong devotion to the sport and continued development of promising athletes.
